my son is in the army, is in iraq for the third time. a few years back, while visiting friends in georgia, this young woman brought a friend with her. when the visit was over, this friend went home to CA packed her things and moved to georgia and moved in with my son. they didn't even know each other. (which i was not happy about but he was over 21). she was his girlfriend during his 2nd tour in iraq and found out what is was like being involved with a soldier. that the calls were not as often as she would like and the lonliness of being away from home. she has a ton of emotional baggage and she latched on to him, and i wonder if he latched on to her as well so that he would have someone to come home to as well. well, last week he e-mails me and tells me she wants a divorce. he didn't know what to do and was feeling lost. i just can't believe the timing, these soldiers have so much on their minds with what they need to do, they don't need crap from home. this is supposed to be there safety net. i don't care whats going on at home, he knows only that everyone is doing great and he doesn't have to worry about any of us. he just needs to stay focused and stay safe. i'm so angry about that. and she proposed to him and how wonderful that they eloped on my birthday, knowing i was against it. i think she did it on purpose so that i would never forget. i'm feeling a little bitter right now. my son is far from perfect, but he did not deserve this.
